Epiphone has joined with Lynyrd Skynyrd in celebrating the legendary band's 30th anniversary by creating a Limited Edition commemorative Les Paul guitar as part of a dream package for Skynyrd fans. The package includes the guitar, two front row or second row seats to a Skynyrd concert, a tour program and the opportunity to meet band members.
The guitar, officially named the Epiphone 30th Anniversary "Lynyrd Skynyrd" Les Paul Standard Gold Top, features a gold top finish and "Lynyrd Skynyrd" inlaid on the fingerboard. The "Lynyrd Skynyrd 30 Years" anniversary logo is featured prominently on the back of the guitar and is also stamped on the gig bag.
"The music of Lynyrd Skynyrd is ingrained in our culture, along with the Les Paul guitars that power their sound," said Jim "Epi" Rosenberg, president of Epiphone. "Speaking as a huge Skynyrd fan, I can't imagine a more memorable way to celebrate the band's thirtieth anniversary than a front row concert seat and a commemorative Les Paul guitar."
The 30th Anniversary Epiphone/Lynyrd Skynyrd ticket package will be available for selected U.S. tour dates, with no more than 10 packages per show. Cost of the package is $1030. It can be purchased only through Lynyrdskynyrd.com and Musictoday.com.
Upon purchase, tickets and meet-and-greet passes will be left at the will-call window. The signed guitar and tour program will be presented at the meet-and-greet.
